Marijuana Delivery Service Shares Top Cannabis Medical Uses

Marijuana is consumed for a variety of reasons. Some do it recreationally, while some are medically dependent on cannabis. Having a marijuana delivery service has helped medical patients obtain the relief they need.

Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for at least 3,000 years. The biologically active compounds found in the plant are called cannabinoids. These interact with two types of receptors: CB1 receptors, which are found predominantly on cells in the brain and spinal cord, and CB2, which are found in various immune cells. The most potent cannabinoid is thought to be delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Some doctors may recommend marijuana primarily for relief from the symptoms of disease rather than as a cure. Here are some top medical uses for cannabis that our weed delivery service can recommend:

Stimulates appetite.A study in healthy people found that those inhaling marijuana consumed more calories (had “the munchies”), especially from fatty and sugary snacks, than those inhaling a placebo. How does it stimulate appetite? The CB1 receptor is active in numerous areas of the body that are known to stimulate eating behavior, such as the hypothalamus and limbic forebrain, and certain areas in the stomach and intestine.

Pain relief. A 2007 study carried out by researchers from the University of California at San Francisco looked at HIV patients with peripheral neuropathy and found that a significantly higher number of patients receiving the treatment (smoking marijuana) experienced a reduction in pain compared with the placebo group. Studies show that THC activates pathways in the central nervous system, which work to block pain signals from being sent to the brain. Likewise, cannabis has been shown to be especially effective against neuropathic pain, or nerve-related pain.

Nausea and vomiting. THC has been available in pill form for treating nausea and vomiting in cancer patients since the 1980s. Marinol, a pill containing synthetic THC, was the first THC-based medication to get FDA approval for this purpose. Since then, other THC pills have been developed and prescribed to patients undergoing chemotherapy, including a pill called Cesamet.
